    Highly recommend that you hire a lawyer immediately. Representing yourself is a very bad idea. First, you need to understand who you are dealing with here. You are dealing with Allstate. Allstate is a notoriously bad insurance carrier - one of the worst carriers to negotiate with - even for us lawyers. They are stingy and don't care about protecting their insureds. Second, if you want full value for your injuries, you case needs to be prepared in such a manner to get full value. This means...

    The workers compensation insurance carrier should pay medical benefits and indemnity (ie. lost wages) benefits if you were injured on the job. Be aware that workers compensation does not pay you your full wages though. It is roughly 2/3 of your average weekly wage. Depending upon the specific facts surrounding your crash, you may also have some additional claims available to you aside from the workers compensation claim. There are potential first party and third party claims to consider....

    Thanks for posting your inquiry. A significant portion of my practice is dedicated to handling construction and industrial accident cases in NJ and PA, and this is a pretty common question that we get as many workers are in similar situations when injured on a job site. The short answer to your question is yes. Yes, you have the right to make a claim for your injuries and losses. The fact that you were working on a visa and paid "off the books" would not serve to preclude you from making...

    Your next step should be to contact a top-notch personal injury lawyer. An experienced personal injury lawyer can guide you through the entire process from the initial investigation through trial (if one is necessary). Look for an attorney with experience handling deck and balcony railing failure cases. I've handled several of these cases over the years, and can tell you that the earlier the attorney gets involved the better. An attorney can lead the investigation and consult with the...

    Yes, you have a viable workers compensation claim since you were injured on the job. Workers compensation would be responsible for the payment of your medical expenses and wage benefits. Keep in mind though that the wage benefits are only a portion of your average weekly wages. You may also have a potential third party case against other contractors that were working at the job site. This will largely be dependent on the specific circumstances surrounding your accident. As an attorney...

    You certainly have a New Jersey workers compensation claim to pursue against your employer, and may also have a viable third party claim to pursue against the shipper. Given the nature and severity of your injuries, you would be well-served by consulting with a a personal injury that has experience handling these types of claims. If I can be of assistance, please let me know. I have offices not far from you in Philadelphia and Cherry Hill.

    Lawyers have an ethical obligation to communicate with our clients. Unfortunately, client care and customer service is pretty underwhelming in our industry. Before firing the current lawyer, I would urge your friend to call his/her office and make an appointment to meet with the lawyer - in person. Sometimes it is a simple communication breakdown with the staff, and the attorney never knows about the problem with the client. Meeting in person with the lawyer is one sure way to get his/...

    I have to admit that it was both refreshing and surprising. It is refreshing to see a consumer ask these important questions and attempt to understand the intricacies of insurance coverage. It is surprising though to hear that an agent was actually attempting to explain the difference between Full Tort and Limited Tort. Most agents gloss over the distinction, if they cover it all, from my experience. To answer your question though, pedestrians are always entitled to Full Tort (ie. unlimited...

    You could potentially have a viable claim against the City or other municipal agency for negligence in failing to cover the sewer. There may also an outsider contractor involved if there was an active or recent repair taking place in the area of your fall. I would urge you to immediately seek the assistance of a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer to evaluate your case. Be mindful of the fact that you only have 180 days from the date of the accident to place the city (or other state and...
